Hi there. I have been following this forum for months now and really want to go ahead and buy a tello. However I keep reading about the Tello Talent and the fact that it might have some improvements on the original model. Does anyone know if a new improved version will be released this year? or should I just go ahead with the original? Love the forum

Welcome in,

Seems to me the new Tello Talent is released in China but there's no signs of this thing being released outside of it soon.

Because of the low price of the Tello and the fact that you've got a whole community of folks here that will keep on flying their traditionnal Tellos I'd advise you to just go for it now. Worst case scenario you'll end up loving it so much that you'll get yourself a Talent as your 2nd Tello. ;p

I have a really tight amount of money that I can use to buy me crap, I have decided I wanted to look into drones and found this, the Tello drone. I think that it is perfect for what I need in every aspect except for the fact that it lacks range capability, is really spotty in urban areas and that it is Laggy. I only get one shot and if I choose a bad drone or product I lose basically the only chance to get into flying. I need somebody to let me know if there will be a new tello that has no lag time and better range but at the same price. And if anyone else has experience with this drone and can give me an honest answer.

Even after almost 3 years there is no serious contender on the horizon, and also no rumors about any successor by Ryze / DJI.

Get a $10 wifi extender and you have all the range you can ask for (in that price range). Stick to a few rules and there isn't much lag in the video.

but just how much range can you get out of a simple wifi extender.
Do you have any suggestions and how much range do they have

I have my Tello a week now and have been flying it a little bit indoors. I was excited to try it outside, but the weather is either too wet or too windy. I decided today to have a go outside as I was feeling confident that I could control it. There was a breeze that I though it would handle. Luckily for me I have a high hedge on one side of my garden as it took off hovered for about 2 seconds and then the gust took it straight into the hedge. Just as well the wind wasnt going in the other direction as I would have to call to quiet a few neighbours to find out if it landed in their garden. Phew.

In direct line of sight without any other signals nearby: 300m/1000ft with good reliability
Maximum I have done personally: 500m / 1500ft using just a standard wifi repeater (Xiaomi Nano Youth, no longer sold).
Maximum I have seen videos with good credibility: 1400m / 3000ft (using Xiaomi Repeater with reflector)

Plus a couple of videos over 2km that look like fake

Tello can handle a good breeze if you do two things: Fly in sport / speed mode and always fly at least 1.5m high

Thanks Volatello. I was about 2 metres high as my wall is about that with the hedge going another meter. I cleared the wall. It was a gust so that is probably what happened. You app is amazing by the way. I only used the Tello app to update the software and do a calibration.

thanks!
Always keep Tello >1.5m above whatever is underneath. If you fly low over something (the hedge) tello will reduce attitude angles and become sluggish, making it impossible to fight any wind.
